    Have you heard his Grammy-winning Down to the Moon?

    That and Dancing with the Lion are his two best.

    I have his first few discs:

    Behind the Gardens-Behind the Wall-Under the Tree.
    Caverna Magica
    White Winds
    Down to the Moon

    But I seem to always go back to Behind the Garden . . .

    Bar, you never cease to amaze. Excellent work this week. Keep it up.

    Ah yes. Vollenweider… the Autobahn… my Mercedes, eager like a young virgin, trembling and responsive… the Blaupunkt stereo-system emitting high levels of sound intensities.

    Saw him years ago at the Beacon. Very impressive live performance.

    I guess I have 36 hours to prepare for Linkfest’s “Look ahead”. Hard hat, flak jacket, MREs, …

    Think of all the Bear Stearns articles to roll out tomorrow…

    reminds me … not seen much coverage of the space shuttle since the launch

    busy week of down on earth news

    Shhhh. Quiet about that! That’s the new plan, man. We are loading up the shuttle with all the bad paper and sending it into orbit. Viola! Problem solved! It’s the ultimate off balance sheet vehicle. :)
